Contra verbosos noli contendere verbis; sermo datur cunctis, animi sapiential paucis

This Latin phrase can be translated as: “Do not argue with wordy people; speech is given to all, wisdom to few.”

It encourages one not to engage in pointless arguments with those who are overly talkative or verbose, as talking is something anyone can do, but only a select few possess true wisdom and insight. Instead of getting caught up in endless debates, it suggests focusing on gaining and sharing meaningful wisdom.
